From what I can tell it is a rod holder? I think the Grace Custom one is similar, if I have the name right. I have a different kind I got from Etsy (seller posts here but I have forgotten who) and I think Arrow Springs has one too.

Glen Odell sells them, on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/agate58
he sometimes posts here.
You can also PM him on FB
His looks pretty much like that, but the handle is padded, and never gets hot

Yes! That is what I have. I bought two of them, because I use my shorts up and so if I am using a piece of glass and my fingers start to get hot, I just grab the end and keep going. Sometimes I have need of a third short color, but it is easy to just release one and grab the new one.

I see he is out right now, but maybe message him to see if he's making more?

Couldn't do w/o out my Greedy Grabbers! Got one years ago - just to try it out - now up to three. They are so very useful. Highly recommended.
